Badge Maker

    Or Button Maker…

    It would be great to have a way for users to easily create buttons to link back to their profiles. These could then go on their other sites, email signatures, etc.

    Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc all have this and it seems like an essential tool to help members promote their profile and the community.

    There would need to be a place for admins to load some images…

    Thanks!

    ok after using buddypress widget theme for testing, it redirect to main page after click profile. maybe a theme issue.

    I’m using a hacked-up child version of dev premium’s BP-Daily. It ain’t free to play with unfortunately.

    If it isn’t working with mine, patrick’s, or the widget theme, it’s probably not a specific theme issue…

    @gregfielding I think it error on all CHILD THEME, I test bp-default and cosmicbuddy (old fashion theme) and it work correctly.

    Maybe I have to change something about setup subnav. because i add it to subnav in profile so with child theme it not found template or something.

    The same way setup nav using in buddypress gifts to add gifts in main, after using child theme it work fine.

    Who know about this childe theme issue or understand the way setupnav, please left some advice.

    nice one. would be good to admin what profile fields should be made available to user. I have long list of fields that only get used as custom fields for other purposes than regular display. but yea some changes on backend don’t update on front, specifically the V/H Layout option didn’t work by setting it in admin, only when i set to allow user to decide layout does it update on hitting update badge. btw what’s the best way to overwrite the default logo image. thanks.

    I have the same issue too. When I click Profile it takes me to the main activity page.

    @nahummadrid adding xprofile exclude list for admin and V/H layout not change if user cant select layout will fix in next update

    badge will change when user hit “update badge” – if user can’t select which option it should follow default option in admin panel

    if any bug about change from admin but not change to user plase let me know.

    @pcwriter “the badge simply appears with the embed code, no adjustments, no customization for users.” – can you explain that

    !! first bug i have to fix is error with child template issue

    How do you set up gifts because I’ve enabled it backend but BP frontend it says ‘ You still don’t have any gift yet!’

    No way of giving a gift to someone on the site.

    @Gpo1 do you mean bp gifts plugin?

    you have to go to other member profile and click tab gifts, it will show box to send gifts to that member.

    -bp badge-

    bug fix!!

    the problem is it cant find home.php in child theme so using locate_template() (as r-a-y recommend) to find template in parent theme is fix this.

    here the code:

    replace line 93-98 from bp-badge-core.php

    with

    locate_template( $templates, true );

    i will update this in next version soon.

    If you get re-directed to the home page, copy the ”badge” folder from templates to your main skin.

    If you use a child theme, upload the folder to: wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/ and it WILL work ;)

    cheers,

    I’m playing with 1.3 and it’s working great…

    2 suggestions:

    1. Create an option in the admin menu to hide the names of the profile fields. Most of the fields are pretty self explanatory anyway and the extra words just clutter things up.

    2. Create an extra field for users to type in a short message or description, giving them some other way to personalize their badge.

    It looks great warut!

    @gregfielding which style do you make? badge image not change automatic after change anything in admin dashboard, it will change when user click “update badge” button.

    if you set border color from blue to red, badge still have blue border except you click update badge in your profile page. if new user register he will get badge style that you set in admin panel.

    it make you style your own web badge before let user use it.

    One more suggestion….

    Is it possible to remove the Buddypress Badge Start and Buddypress Badge End from the code?

    Those parts actually end up displaying above and below the badge on some other websites I’ve tried to past the badge on.

    V1.3 works just fine… thanks!

    Another suggestion: allow site admins to define a default width and height, and allow users to adjust if needed.

    As it is now, badge dimensions are defined by those of the uploaded logo (width if vertical layout, height if horizontal layout).

    Oh, and please do allow site admins/users to show or hide the field labels. As Greg says, they aren’t really needed.

    :-)
